In the Garden Hymn

" I come to the garden alone...  and he walks with me and he talks with me, and he tells me I am his own." 

In the Garden

Words & Music: C. Austin Miles (March 1912)

1.  I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The son of God discloses.


And he walks with me, and he talks with me,
And he tells me I am his own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

2.  He speaks, and the sound of his voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that he gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.

3.  I’d stay in the garden with him
Though the night around me be falling,
But he bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

This hymn was sung in the 1984 mo­vie Plac­es in the Heart,  which won two Acad­e­my Awards.

For meditation, I heartily recommend this video:

Here's another version of "In the Garden" sung by the late Elvis Presley.
